Women and Money: A Career in Science and Tech
We all know that there aren't enough women taking up careers in science and technology, often referred to as STEM. But what's being done to improve this and what kind of jobs are available, if it's an area you're interested in? Sarah Pennells is joined in the studio by Benita Mehra, President of Women in Engineering Society, who explains why so few women go into engineering. Anne-Marie Imafidon, Co-founder of Stemette, and Stella Tournier, WISE member STEM Role Model, discuss whether girls are not encouraged enough to take engineering or science subjects at school (or are they not interested?). Meanwhile Sophie Graham, National Careers Service Adviser, looks at the academic route into engineering or science if you decide you want to come to it later in life.
